Bill Sapsis Intimate 90 Minute Online Session

USITT CHESAPEAKE PRESENTS…

Members are invited to join Bill Sapsis for an intimate 90 minute online learning session. Event will take place on July 21st, 2020 at 10am.

Bill Sapsis announces a new training program that is social distancing compliant. There’s much more information available on the internet now that most of us are in quarantine.

These webinars are great but the information they provide tends to be general in nature and doesn’t always meet the specific needs of an organization or company. This is where Bill Sapsis can help.

Bill will bring his 45+ years of experience to your video screen for live discussions with you and your staff and crew on issues that address your specific concerns and the needs of your operation. Unlike a traditional webinar where you are lost in a sea of faces on a screen, this event will be limited to 20 participants and the content will be based on questions submitted beforehand from those registered.

1 ETCP CREDIT

Please RSVP to Tom Haughey thaughey@wcupa.edu by July 17th with your registration request and questions for Bill Sapsis.

Thank you

Fielding Future Programming Requests

October 16, 2019

Hello Students and Faculty!

The board of USITT Chesapeake would like to know what types of programming you would be interested in attending!  We are asking you to put on your thinking caps and come up with an event – workshop, lecture, session – on something you would drive a few hours to attend.  We would ideally like to do this in an area central to our region.  There are no silly ideas, so don’t be afraid to suggest something.  

In 1960 when the national organization started, it’s purpose was to “promote dialogue, research, and learning among its practitioners”.  Now with the existence of the regional sections, we can bring more helpful, learning events closer to those in our regions.

We are eager to put together programming that will be beneficial to you, and to get you involved in our section.  Please submit you ideas to me at jastein@vt.edu.  We look forward to hearing from you!!

Sincerely,

Jeremiah Brophy
